Has anyone purchased from Liori Diamonds online? I am desperately in love with these rings (see below), and can’t find them anywhere else. I don’t like buying online unless I can see a good review or two first.

I considered it. But upon further investigation I saw one of their videos on YouTube of the owner advocating for and using a lot of clarity enhanced diamonds for white and colored stones. Not my thing.

I love the first one. I’ve never heard of them before though.

@lucyduck: STAY AWAY, BUYER BEWARE!
Designs are nice but Liori Diamonds conducts illegal, fraudulent trade practices by sending smaller, lower quality diamonds to unsuspecting consumers.
I bought a 2.01 total carat blue diamond ring; with 1.26ct center stone and 0.75ct side stones. The ring shipped to me was actually only 1.10 total carat based on a third-party appraisal. The quality turned out to be one grade below the appraisal certificate that was included with the ring.
This practice may impact many consumers of which most does not even realize the situation. Unless equipped with proper measurement tools and trained eyes, most consumers will not be able to tell the difference in size and quality. This happened exactly to me as I just realized the issue when I saw the center stone of 1.26ct is noticeably smaller compared to a 1ct diamond pendant I just bought from a different online jeweler. A third-party jeweler performed the measurement and appraised it to be 0.85ct only; as the diameter of the center stone is 6mm only. Pls see the video below. This assessment is in line with two other jewelers estimate.
After confronted with videos and pictures, Liori Diamonds promised in writing on Feb21 2013 to fix the issue but then backpedaled on Feb25 as the ring was on its way back for fixing.
